Embracing Sustainability: Ushering in Net Zero Week with Our ESG Impact Report 

Net Zero Week is the UK’s official national awareness week drawing attention to the impacts of climate change and a call to action for businesses and playmakers to take strides towards sustainability. At OCS, we are heeding this call as we take meaningful strides to demonstrate our commitment to delivering positive impacts on our environment and society. Engaging in a multitude of activities aimed at safeguarding our planet, we recognise that transparency is paramount. By sharing our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) impact report with the public for the first time, we aim to foster accountability and underscore our dedication to three critical aspects: the environment, our people, and governance. 

This report sheds light on our efforts last year and we invite you to explore the depth of our commitment and join us in our collective mission to protect our precious planet. 

The merger with Atalian Servest’s operations in the UK, Ireland, and Asia has catapulted us into the echelons of the world’s largest international facilities service providers. This momentous union marks a pivotal step in our quest to become the best facilities service provider in the world. And at the heart of this journey lies a fundamental pillar: ESG. 

A Shared Commitment

As a proud member of the OCS Group, our UK and Ireland team is steadfastly aligned with this mission. We refuse to shy away from the challenges that lie ahead. Instead, we embrace an approach rooted in evidenced action—a commitment to tangible progress. This ethos permeates every facet of our organisation, from the shop floors to the boardrooms. 

Setting Ambitious Goals

Our ESG culture has undergone a remarkable evolution since 2023, fuelled by the winds of change sweeping through our business landscape. We’ve pivoted with purpose, casting a brighter and more ambitious spotlight on integrating sustainability into our corporate DNA. We recognise that we are at the beginning of a long journey, but we remain committed to enhancing our progress reports as we work toward our goals

Net Zero GHG Emissions by 2040

On theme with Net Zero Week, our compass points resolutely toward a bold goal—to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across all our UK and Ireland operations by 2040. Together, we can turn this vision into reality. Sixteen years may seem fleeting, but the urgency of our planet’s needs propels us forward.

Leadership and Strategy

As part of our commitment to ESG principles, we have bolstered our ESG team for the UK and Ireland. Their mandate is to elevate our sustainability initiatives to new heights. But our efforts don’t end there. In 2024, we have conducted a materiality assessment—a compass that will guide our ESG strategy, which will be launched later this year. We are deliberate in identifying the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we champion and determining where our impact can be most profound. These considerations drive our purposeful journey. 

Reshaping Tomorrow

As stewards of sustainability, we’re reshaping the contours of responsible management. Our larger business enterprise is charting a course that transcends mere profit margins. It’s about making a difference—socially, environmentally, and commercially. Net Zero Week isn’t just a calendar event; it’s a call to action. And we heed that call with resolve. Together, we’ll forge a future where our legacy is one of stewardship, leaving footprints of positive change across the globe.
